Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Effective January 15, 2018, the Board of Directors of Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. (the "Registrant") increased the size of the Board from ten to eleven. Following the increase in the size of the Board, the Board filled the vacancy and appointed Mr. Jean-Paul Mangeolle to the Board, effective immediately.

Mr. Mangeolle has been appointed to the Registrant's existing Audit Committee and its Compensation Committee. There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Mangeolle and any other person pursuant to which he was selected as a director, and there are no transactions in which Mr. Mangeolle has an interest requiring disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

Mr. Mangeolle will participate in the non-employee director compensation arrangements generally applicable to all of the Registrant’s non-employee directors. Under the terms of those arrangements as currently in effect, new directors initially appointed after September 30th and prior to our next annual meeting of shareholders will receive a restricted stock award having an intended target value of approximately $215,000 on an annual basis. This award will be granted following our next annual meeting of shareholders.

Mr. Mangeolle has more than 35 years of experience in life science and bioscience on a global scale. He has extensive experience building teams and profitable businesses across the globe in multiple market segments, including biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, academic research laboratories, microelectronics manufacturing, and OEM companies. He retired recently from AB SCIEX (an operating company of Danaher Corp.), where he had held the position of president since 2014. In that role, he was responsible for Sciex’s and Phenomenex’s global operations. Previously, he was Executive Vice President for the Process Solutions Business Unit of Merck KGaA Millipore. Mr. Mangeolle spent more than 25 years with Millipore in progressively larger roles, culminating in the role of President, Bioprocess Division, where he was also a member of the Corporate Executive Committee and an elected corporate officer.
